Rural Fuel Rebate

Mark is continuing his campaigning to introduce a Rural Fuel Rebate in Ceredigion.

Lib Dems in Government are already helping to build a fairer society by scrapping Labour’s planned fuel duty rise, which has provided a welcome respite to the budgets of Ceredigion’s hard-working families meaning the average tank of petrol costs £10 less than it would have had Labour still been in power.

But in an area as rural as ours, people rely on cars to get around and get on with their lives much more than urban areas, so we need to do more.  It is clear that we need a fuel rebate here in Ceredigion.

A rural fuel rebate would give a 5p cut in the fuel duty paid by drivers in rural areas, which would be a huge help with the cost of living.  Whilst Mark made robust representations to the Treasury and to the EU, unfortunately Wales was unsuccessful in qualifying for the last round of the fuel duty rebate, but the fight continues.  We will continue to campaign to introduce this measure.
